Well the big news coming out of college football this week is Johnny Manziel leaving Texas A&M and entering the NFL draft. Now the topic I'm bringing up is, should the Arizona Cardinals draft Johnny Manziel if he somehow falls in the draft and is available when it's Arizona's turn to pick?
I know that many people will see this and immediately think "Please Cardinals, no." And I do understand why a lot of people would feel that way. But if Manziel somehow goes undrafted by that many teams, my thought is, why not? Yes, I understand that Carson Palmer ended up playing pretty well this year, aside from all of the interceptions. But Palmer is an aging QB and this franchise needs to draft its future QB either in this years' draft or the next. I also think that this coaching staff could make a decent NFL quarterback out of Manziel and teach him to not make as many reckless mistakes he is known to make on the field. That being said, I also think there are players on this team that could help him with his off-the-field issues as well. Just look at what they have done with Tyrann Mathieu.
Beyond Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, I'm not sure that there are any franchise QB's in this draft, so it is unlikely for either of them to fall all the way to the Cardinals in the draft. But, if given the opportunity, I say the Cardinals should draft Johnny Football.
Let me know what you think!
